Speaking Of Phantasm

This was one of those movies my evil sister and her friends talked about a lot when I was young.  They treated it as something that wasn't just a horror movie.  Almost like it was too scary and too weird to be just a horror film.  So it became something bigger and creepier.  I remember watching it with her and some [poor] old boyfriend of hers.  And it really was too weird and too creepy to be just another horror film.

The scene below is a perfect example (I have it set to go at 1:51):

I'm embarrassed to say I have never seen any of the Phantasm movies. Looks decent though. I'll have to look them up.

The first is well worth the watch. Loaded with the weirdest concepts ever.

This is still the only film I cannot watch again. I'm tempted but it was so out there that it really shook me.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. First time I saw it was at a drive in. Scared the pee outta me.
